Last week, I had one of those nights where I didn't want to go to the store, but we didn't have a whole lot of food around the house. So I started scrolling through FoodGawker trying to find a recipe that I could make with what I had. I found this Lemon Chicken Pasta and decided to try it, although I didn't have everything I needed. I improvised. Here's what you need:
- Half a box of Macaroni Pasta
- 2 Chicken Breasts
- 3 tbs of Lemon Juice
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 onion, diced
- ¼ cup milk
- ⅓ cup romano cheese, grated
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
First thing I did was cut my chicken breast into thin strips and throw it into a skillet with a little olive oil and the diced onion. Heavily sprinkle with salt and pepper over the onions and chicken. Let that cook on medium.
Next boil your pasta in a pot of heavily salted water. While that is boiling, finish cooking the chicken thoroughly. Once the chicken is cooked, pour your chicken broth over the mix in the skillet. Let that simmer for a while. Next scoop out a 1/4 cup of the salted pasta water and pour it over your chicken/onion mixture.
Drain and rinse your pasta and then toss it in the skillet with the rest of the mixture. Mix everything up together and then pour your milk over everything. Mix and sprinkle your romano cheese over the mixture. Mix until all of the cheese is melted and you are done!
Once I poured out the pasta into a bowl, I sprinkled with more fresh Romano cheese! :)
